Arkadiko in 2023

Where we're going we don't need fiat... 🌚

Stable Swap Release

In collaboration with ALEX, we released the first version of our stable swap xUSD/USDA. In this pool xUSD and USDA are priced stable against each other (~$1), which allows for efficient and low slippage swaps. The swap mechanism works smoothly and incentivises arbitrage of the two stablecoins.
